Do your staff know how to prevent cyber-attacks at work?

Tresami clients know we have them covered in terms of their cyber security software. So now, it’s probably your staff who are the weak links in your business’ data security.

Here are some facts from the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC):

  • July-December 2022 saw a 26% increase in the number of notifiable data breaches compared with the first half of 2022
  • 25% of all data breaches were due to human error
  • Health and finance businesses had the most reportable breaches
  • 88% of breaches were small scale attacks

So while large data breaches receive a lot of media attention, most data security breaches occur in smaller businesses.

The best cyber-attacks look innocent

One of the most popular and simplest forms of cyber-attack comes from innocent looking emails. These malicious emails will usually contain malware that can lock every file across your system – including your cloud storage, computer hard drives and server.

However, there are sophisticated malicious emails which contain keystroke loggers which track everything a user types. That means hackers can gain access to things like bank account passwords and from there, they can steal funds.

Another common cyber crime is intercepting invoice emails and changing the bank account details so your suppliers never receive payment. Not to mention, gaining access to the personal and payroll details of your staff.

Often, cyber security breaches aren’t immediately apparent. Instead, they remain hidden from obvious view while the hackers gain greater access to your systems. By the time you and your staff are aware of the problem, a great deal of harm has occurred.

Could investing in staff training prevent cyber-attacks derailing your business?

We think so and that’s why Tresami offers online cyber security training that teaches you and your staff how to recognise suspect emails and what actions need to be taken.

All of our cyber security training programs are delivered online in short, meaningful, interactive segments. They are also mobile responsive so staff can access the training anywhere, any time.

Before suggesting a particular type of online training for your staff, the Tresami team will evaluate your needs. As an added bonus, investing in staff training is often considered a tax deduction for businesses, but check with your accountant first.

Avoiding the issue of potential cyber-attacks is not a solution! Instead, your best defence could be contacting us for advice on the right cyber security training for your staff.
